The Body



July 17, 2020


Let's look at Romans 12:1-2 again as we finish up some information to help us see who we are in Christ.


Romans 12:1-2 (KJV)

12 "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

2 "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."


Hagin makes the point that Paul was not writing to sinners here, he was writing to the saints at Rome; he said, "I beseech you therefore, brethren . . ." He addressed his letter "To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints . . . ." (Rom. 1:7).


He said for us to do something with our bodies—to "present your bodies a living sacrifice . . ." It is up to us. If we don't do anything with our bodies, nothing will be done with them.


There are those who say, "Well, it doesn't make any difference about the body or what it does. This old body isn't going to heaven anyhow." But it does make a difference to God what we do with our bodies. He wants transfigured bodies. He wants us to present our bodies "a living sacrifice . . . which is your reasonable service."


Father, I pray that we will see how important it is for us to understand how the spirut, the soul, and the body work with one another. I pray that we will discover that when the spirit and the soul work together it will cause the body to be under control, but when the soul and the body work together it will cause the spirit to be dominated.


Corinthians 9:27, "But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection:”


Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
